IMHO, we could do without the DNC and the Democrat party altogether. Same for the Republicans.
Political parties offer a non-thinking way of governing:
---- oh, I'm a Donkey, I'll vote with the Donkeys - same for the Elephants.
I would like to see political parties outlawed (not gonna happen) so that the people that represent US have to use their brains, think on issues and
policies on their own, and govern for the benefit and to the will of the people. Since that isn't going to be possible, let's have at least 4 major
funded parties and build a coalition government every election cycle. I think we'd be amazed at the benefits of "forced compromise" beacuse no ONE
party has the majority.
But another poster indicated we should get the money out of government as a #2 priority - realistically, that ain't gonna happen either - but I
heartily concur and support the idea. Realistically, the only expedient way to get the money out of government is to ban campaign contributions and
only allow government funding of elections and candidates. If we could ban LOBBYISTS and put the existing ones at the bottom of the ocean
(figuratively speaking) - that would REALLY get the money out of government.
Of course, I'll only fly my 48 star casket flag any more because the country we have today isn't the same as the country represented by the flag I was
born under. I may start flying it with the stars on top again with the new administration, but until we have one installed - AND can see how things
are going to shake out - I'll just keep the flagpole bare.
